False Prophecies of Mormonism
Godhood Means Salvation
Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, pg. 153; “Each command we obey sends us another rung up the ladder to perfected manhood and toward godhood; and every law disobeyed is a sliding toward the bottom where man merges into the brute world.”
Every single thing a Mormon does in his/her life is because they feel they’re working their way to becoming a god or goddess someday. Without this achievement there is no true salvation for the Mormon. Sadly they don’t trust anything from the Bible unless their inspired leaders have given them the okay to believe little passages here and there. And they typically don’t trust information from any outsiders.
Imagine isolating yourself and then believing that if you’re not perfect you keep sliding down to hell.
Living a righteous life is admirable, but living righteously apart from God and believing you’re going to heaven is fooling yourself.
We don’t live apart from God, but with him.
We are not solely motivated by the promise of Exaltation, but also by a love of God and his children.
We trust the Bible, just not other’s interpretations of it; and we are more willing to admit that after 2000+ years there are going to be some errors.
Oh, and sliding down is not necessarily going to hell. That is more getting off the latter all together.
Shem – Hope all is well with you and your family. May God richly Bless you and your family during this wonderful time as we celebrate what Jesus has done for us all…
“He came from Heaven to Earth, to show the Way
From the Earth to the cross, my debt to pay.
From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky,
Lord, we lift Your Name on High”
